Hello all! Two of today's cassettes were hard to photograph in their full-package glory. The Chadbourne comes wrapped in a large sheet of paper, and "Bambina Precoce" comes in a bag with all sorts of crap, including a poster and a dried bean. You will just have to imagine what they look like complete.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 12:00pm listener james from westwood:

Howdy, Tony and all! If any music I've purchase came with legumes, I've likely overlooked them. They might be beanstalks by now.
Avatar    Tue. 4/26/16 12:01pm V Priceless:

Now I'm here..think I'll stay around, around, around, around...hey Tony!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:01pm Tony Coulter:

Heya James! I've been tempted to throw my cassette bean out as a biohazard, but it's so dry I suppose it's harmless.

hi everyone.

Greetings, coelacanth!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:08pm Tony Coulter:

Some of the track titles for this Chadbourbe tape are hard to make out due to scribbly-writing-itis, so I'm just going to be a lazy bastard and not even attempt a blow-by-blow tracklist. You will recognize some of the songs, though, I imagine -- there are a bunch of covers.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

The Chadbourne tape is the black one on the right, btw....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/26/16 12:11pm Uncle Michael:

I can't believe there's an artist I've heard of on Tape Hiss!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

Hey hey, Uncle Mikey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 12:13pm Stepchild:

You know it's been a tough year when your first reaction to hearing a few songs in a row by a favorite artist is to almost break down crying, oh NO... Thanks for the lovely tape Tony!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:15pm Tony Coulter:

You're most welcome, Stepchild! Glad to see you here....

Will be playing the whole tape, as always on these Tape Hiss shows....
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:24pm Tony Coulter:

Anyone here seen Chadbourne live? I've only managed to catch him once, ages and ages ago, in duet with Fred Frith. At the time they seem mismatched to me -- maybe I'd feel differently now.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:26pm Tony Coulter:

"now" meaning, if I went back in time with the brain I'm stuck with currently....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/26/16 12:28pm JtotheK:

you are looking at NOW now. When will now be then? Soon. We missed it. When? Just now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/26/16 12:35pm Uncle Michael:

I always confuse Chadbourne with Vic Chesnutt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 12:37pm Stepchild:

I too only had that pleasure of seeing Doc C live once, also in the dim past, in a solo set at the old Court Tavern in New Brunswick, NJ.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

I confuse Rick Nelson with Rick Springfield. One of them had a garden party, and the other wore a cape, that's all I know....
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:41pm Tony Coulter:

That abrupt ending to side A is just the way the cassette is -- it's done in cassette verité style....
  Tue. 4/26/16 12:41pm Dean:

No. Rick Wakeman wore the cape.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

Ha! (Hey, Dean!)

Good afternoon (or morning, evening) to all hissy tapeworms!
  Tue. 4/26/16 12:43pm Nardo:

I think I heard this on the Ground Ole Opry.
Avatar    Tue. 4/26/16 12:44pm Rich in Washington:

I get filberts confused with Lee Hazelnuts.
  Tue. 4/26/16 12:44pm Nardo:

uhhh ... Grand. That wasn't meant to be a pun. Or maybe?
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Rich and Doug!!

Just found the cape-wearing Rick Springfield action figure: megomuseum.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 12:46pm coelacanth:

for a second i thought "nazi punks fuck off" was "london bouncers", which somehow would've been even weirder.
Avatar    Tue. 4/26/16 12:46pm Rich in Washington:

I remember ordering some Eugene Chadbourne cassettes from the man himself and one of them had a repurposed cereal box for a cover, the other a used envelope.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Nardo!

"Ground Ole Opry" ... I like it ... intentional or not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 12:46pm coelacanth:

Nardo, an inadvertent pun?
  Tue. 4/26/16 12:47pm Dean:

I mean, c'mon!

@ Rich: This Chadbourne tape just came wrapped in a sheet of paper.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:49pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Well, yeah, that is rather splendiferous....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/26/16 12:52pm cklequ:

I bought a cassette from him at a live show once that came in a Medaglia D'oro coffee can.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:53pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, cklequ! I guess he should win some sort of recycling award....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 12:54pm northguineahills:

I bought a cassette from Eugene from a live show that was encased in a used smelly gym sock in 1997.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:55pm Tony Coulter:

For realz? That's almost getting into Caroliner disgusto medical waste packaging territory. (Heya, NGH!)
Avatar    Tue. 4/26/16 12:57pm Rich in Washington:

I wish there was some kind of documentation of his cassette output, but given that he kept/keeps putting them out, I am sure it's ever-changing.
His website is a mess and hard to navigate.
And Discogs doesn't really document cassette releases as thoroughly.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, I couldn't find any trace of this cassette online. I guess people who are as prolific as him have no time to be "organized"....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/26/16 12:58pm cklequ:

The coffee can i got had a sock in it too.

Yeah... and i got a sock with a Caroliner record once
Avatar    Tue. 4/26/16 12:59pm Rich in Washington:

I've got a few Caroliner releases that now contain mildew. Not sure if it's worth retaining the integrity of the original release if it jeopardizes the rest of my collection.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:01pm Tony Coulter:

I've got a Caroliner set that contains an apparently real used medical-waste bag with what look like shit stains on it. It is triple-bagged and I haven't died yet.
Avatar    Tue. 4/26/16 1:02pm Rich in Washington:

this is a great cassette!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

There's some interesting interview stuff at the end of this side too...
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

Bugs Bunny in the white room!!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:14pm Tony Coulter:

There is a dsicogs page for this tape, not that it adds anything to what I already (don't) know: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:24pm Tony Coulter:

What say you? Think this is a fake comp? (Meaning, all tracks are by the same people pretending to be different groups.) That's my guess, anyhow....
Avatar    Tue. 4/26/16 1:25pm Rich in Washington:

"With Insert & Objects"
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

Yep -- as mentioned above, one of my objects is a by-now 31-year-old bean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 1:27pm listener james from westwood:

Either that bean's gotta get a job and pay rent or move the heck out!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:28pm Tony Coulter:

Damn millennial beans!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 1:29pm listener james from westwood:

Grooving on this Superbeep!
  Tue. 4/26/16 1:31pm Dean:

Makes me want to break into Stevie Wonder's "Superstion."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 1:39pm Cecile:

the female voice sounded very Circus Americano.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:40pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Cecile!!
  Tue. 4/26/16 1:40pm Fredrik Nilsen:

Weird, I was checking Facebook when suddenly I fell asleep and woke up listening to this show! How did that happen???
  Tue. 4/26/16 1:40pm Dean:

There was evidently a Boz Lapinski in Italy's Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers. Same person? This tape falls near the last couple years of the band's career.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:42pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Fredrik!!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Could be the same person, I guess -- though on this tape it's Boz & Lapinski. Who knows!!
  Tue. 4/26/16 1:43pm Fredrik Nilsen:

Hey TC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 1:43pm Cecile:

hey tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 1:49pm Cecile:

I can see someone sampling this and making something even crazier.
  Tue. 4/26/16 1:50pm Dean:

This is likely the person who went by Zedo & Wz: https://firenze.academia.edu/TommasoTozzi
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Yes -- he's the publisher of the zine "Bambina Precoce." My suspicion is that he's the guy behind these tracks as well.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

"Bambina Precoce" was mostly a visual arts zine....
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:58pm Tony Coulter:

I suspect that because Tozzi is also a musician -- but who knows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/26/16 1:58pm JtotheK:

Augh...I'm going to miss the last tape, meeting related. Thanks for the show today, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

See ya, JtotheK! Thanks for showing up....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 2:00pm Cecile:

being somewhat of a fan of Complete, this sounds kind of polished.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/26/16 2:01pm JtotheK:

"thanks for showing up" sounds like the type of trophy I could win at sports.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 2:02pm Cecile:

you know, Tom Verlaine's real name is Tom Miller. I hear a slight similarity in the vocals. But Verlaine wouldn't let something like this even leave his brain.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:02pm Tony Coulter:

@ JtotheK: Yes, it's your participation award.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: This guy is Tom S. Miller -- and he was definitely from New Jersey (his home address and phone number are on the tape -- I blocked them out in the photo for privacy reasons)
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

I have not tried to contact him, though....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 2:08pm Cecile:

thanks, Tony.
This song is actually kind of pretty in a weird way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 2:08pm Cecile:

yeah, that might not be a rock you want to turn over...
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

If memory serves, there was someone who was on FMU briefly named Tom Miller -- wonder if it could have been this guy.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:22pm Tony Coulter:

That was in the early '90s....
  Tue. 4/26/16 2:29pm MrFab:

Jandek's saying "Man, what is the deal with THIS guy?!"

Where did you get this tape, Tony? Is it available anywhere?
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:31pm Tony Coulter:

Heya. MrFab!!

Got it in a big ol' batch of random tapes. As far as I know it is not available anywhere.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:33pm Tony Coulter:

Someone should release it, though. I believe there would be a tiny market for it....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 2:35pm Cecile:

it sounds like little bits that fell off a Todd Tammanend Clark song.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:35pm Tony Coulter:

Oops -- sorry the tracklist has been going a bit haywire. Everything is now under control.....
  Tue. 4/26/16 2:40pm Fredrik Nilsen:

This sounds like some of the stuff people would send to the LAFMS in the early 80's when we were doing cassette compilations. Really, really wack and oddly appealing.
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:44pm Tony Coulter:

@ Fredrik: Yes, I can imagine you would have attracted all sorts of bedroom-recording lunatics. Did you save those tapes?!?
Avatar Tue. 4/26/16 2:47pm Tony Coulter:

Here's that tape hiss I promised you....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 2:49pm Cecile:

cool show, Tony. one of a kind.

but, Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/26/16 3:04pm coelacanth:

(it's on me too because i probably missed the best stuff.)
  Tue. 4/26/16 3:24pm Fredrik Nilsen:

No. Unfortunately when I moved to Europe in 1984 I lost most everything, including my own solo recordings from the 70's/early 80's.
